#PHvote: Hofilena on 2010 polls: Heavy use of television; little of social media
#PHvote: Go: Positive play on Noynoy Aquino helped him in 2010
#PHvote Hofileña: If in 2010 people were looking at programs, platforms, in 2013 people will look for less of that; more on entertainment, endorsements; more political ads
#PHvote Go: Social media will be maximized; but TV will be number 1 still
#PHvote Hofileña: More than 20% of Filipinos have access to Internet; huge %ge use Facebook
#PHvote Hofileña: You see efforts to have presence on social media (re: candidates)
#PHvote Go: Problem is we put on candidates, handlers the burden of elevating discussion to a higher level; voters should also be involved
